Chelsea is currently sitting at the tip of the Premier League’s bottom half of the table. It is not a full crisis situation but it isn’t a good start either from the London club. After the matches against Manchester United and Leicester City, we could all notice a steady improvement in the team. 

They were brilliant in their victory over Wolves, and most recently gave a spirited performance against Liverpool, even though they eventually lost the match. Especially, the performances of Tammy Abraham and N’Golo Kante are greatly encouraging for the fans. 

Their Top 4 prospects are not looking that grim. And anyone getting the best betting bonuses for wagering on the chances of Chelsea won’t likely be disappointed by the end of the season. 

1- vs. Bolton (2005)

The 2004-05 season was a record-breaking season for Chelsea who accumulated 95 points on their way to the Premier League title. With 13 goals, Frank Lampard was the leading goal scorer for Chelsea and he deservedly won Barclays Player of the Season and the Football Writers’ Association Player of the Year that term.

One of his best performances that season came at the Reebok Stadium in April of 2005. Winning that match against Bolton would have secured the league title for the Blues who hadn’t won it in 50 long years. 

Frank Lampard opened the scoring with a brilliant 61st-minute goal before sealing the match with a superb strike a few minutes later. This way, Chelsea secured the league title with three matches remaining. 

2- vs. Everton (2006)

In December 2006, Chelsea came to Goodison Park in what was an important match for the Blues who were competing with Manchester United for the Premier League title. The match looked to be slipping from Chelsea’s hands when Everton were leading 2-1, courtesy of goals from Mikel Arteta and Joseph Yobo for the Toffees. 

However, Frank Lampard’s brilliance soon changed the course of this match. After receiving Salomon Kalou’s ball, he smashed one of the best league goals of his career, and Chelsea went on to win by 3-2 in the end.  

3- vs. Birmingham (2010)

The 2009-10 season brought a lot of successes to Chelsea and Frank Lampard. The English footballer bagged 26 goals in that campaign, playing a key part in winning the 3rd Premier League trophy for Chelsea. 

One of his top performances that season came against Birmingham when they visited Stamford Bridge in January. Birmingham were unbeaten in 15 matches at that time but Chelsea gave them a sound beating. 

After Florent Malouda’s opener, Lampard burst into life and struck either side of the interval. Both goals were eye-catching rockets fired from quite a long distance by the English footballer.
